Servers are busy, but friendly. Wait time at 11:45 am, Sat. was 25 min....a busy place. Decor is simple modern, concrete loft vibe. Meals were disappointing. Skillet breakfast ($15)(6" cast iron skillet) had a few, thin strands of pulled pork...so unsatisfying. Smoked salmon/poached eggs with Bernaise sauce on croissant ($16) were good. Side of frise salad was dressed with an... More

I came here for my sisters birthday with my family for brunch - Pablo was our waiter, and made us feel so welcome in the beautiful, and bright restaurant. He served us with a smile and was the best! And then we get the food....absolutely delicious!! The pancakes live up to the hype and the biscuits and scones were delicious.... More

Been there for the third time and am still impressed with the unobtrusive, yet, efficient service, good wine selection and fantastic food. Had the duck confit with waffles and blueberries which were a nice match to last nights cauliflower curry with all kind of fancy spices. Definitely recommend the Pinot noir from Beaume and the small but delicious selection of... More

Came here in a group of 8 for a friend's birthday. None of us had ever been here, and we all enjoyed our meals. Out of the ordinary dishes using fresh ingredients. Service was very friendly and courteous and knew exactly when to top off the water, check in, offer more drinks or menu items, and when to avoid hovering.... More

Everything was so tasty. Pancakes were incredible and huge. I ordered Veda's choice pouched eggs and substituted the croissant with sourdough bread, it was delicious...Service was very good also.We will definitely come back for pancakes and also try other things at the menu....

Usually a long wait on weekends but well worth it. Been here a few times, the cocktails and mimosas are on point. Love the pancakes, the eggs benny and the skillet with pulled pork. You can easily kill time in the area while waiting for a seat to open up. Love this place!

Went for brunch on a recent trip to Toronto. I used to frequent Mildred Pierce many years ago and hadn't yet tried Mildred's Temple. It was a disappointment because we were told an 1.5 to 2 hour wait for a table. It was 12:30 so that wasn't happening especially when I had a 3.5 hour drive ahead of me. Disappointed!

I've heard many great things about this place; albeit, it was always about brunch. We decided to try this place for winterlicious. I think because of all the hype, it didn't live up to expectations. The appetizer was ok. They weren't the best crab cakes, but they certainly weren't the worst. The main I picked was duck and waffles. The... More

We took a one hour detour to come to this place. Upon arriving, the hostess told us the wait was 90 minutes. We nearly left, but as big brunch fans, we decided to stick it out. We ordered the blueberry pancakes (per recommendation) and waited. Were these the greatest pancakes I had ever eaten? Yes. Were they worth the wait... More

Had dinner with friends. Fast, efficient service and great food. Not cheap but reasonable. Enjoyed the chicken biryani and octopus and chorizo appetizer. Really sleek interior as well. Will be back and I don't say that very often.

Neighbourhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
